A while ago, Flaxseed the winter white hamster started chewing at her water bottle stand. We had plenty of chew toys for her but she seemed to prefer the bottle stand and bottle over her regular chew-toys. Look at the huge hole she made!
The solution: A chew-proof ceramic bottle stand
boo_the_hamster requested photos that show the whole bottle stand, but we thought a video might be clearer. The video’s a little shaky but you can see the entire ceramic stand, the area where we put the bottle in, and the ‘hideout’. Also the stand/hideout is a good size for dwarf hamsters but probably too small for a Syrian hamster.
Where to buy a ceramic bottle stand
The above bottle stand is now available on Amazon in Yellow 😀
We got the above bottle stand from China and it’s also available on Aliexpress which is a China-based shopping site.
Amazon US sells a different (and cheaper) ceramic bottle stand for hamsters (photo below) but it doesn’t come with a hideout.
